"Caricature" (2017) acrylic, epoxy paint, collage and transfers on cradled wood panel, 26 x 26 inches framed This piece was inspired by a friend of mine, Johnny Sampson, who is a respected cartoonist and illustrator in the United States. The color scheme comes directly from the palette of one of his recent comic series, "Total Fuck Up." The composition is coincidentally very graphic, employing my conceptual abstraction to create a symbolic portrait.
Collage:Acrylic on Wood
Size:26 W x 26 H x 2.5 D in
Packaging:Ships in a Box
Delivery Time:Typically 5-7 business days for domestic shipments, 10-14 business days for international shipments.
Jim Ford is a multidisciplinary artist and type designer based in Milwaukee. Ford creates a fusion of modern and contemporary abstraction in his “collage paintings” which are activated with his sense of humor, history, culture and spirituality. Working in series, he has also developed a few signatures in paper collage. Ford’s most recent works on paper are informed by his years of experience in shaping letterforms and cutting images. ------------------------------- Art is a vehicle that affords us adventure and wonder. Each piece is an opportunity to express concepts in a new way as we learn and evolve. In my work, I strive to master the art of storytelling in my own visual language. My art is largely collage-based, though I have a background in drawing and design. Juxtaposing passages of paint, collage and assemblage, I tend to blur the lines between mediums so that the elements are working in unison. My work challenges the viewer to form their own personal analysis, decoding clues while exploring personal emotional and symbolic associations. Fueled by music, inside jokes and observations about modern life, the work tends to take on a humorous attitude with quirky titles and unusual subjects. A progression connects my pieces, which graduate from one “seed” to another, working to create a rhythm, momentum and – ultimately, a distinct abstract language. My work is, at times, a rebellion or reaction to our time and place; and other times embracing the human experience. Each piece is vastly different from the last, and while I employ a number of styles and techniques – my work is perhaps best defined by its compositional style and quality of energy. I’m interested in evolving my work into sculptural forms and experimenting with installation and space. My art practice is about expansion, growth and discovery, more than repetition. Building upon the themes that define my work, I am always seeking new and different ways of remixing materials to propel my artistic vision.
